Caps raised their tickets 8% for next season. That's the fifth straight year with an increase, including a pair of 20+% raises in there. Pittsburgh blew up their prices with the new building. And the Rangers have had a couple of big jumps in recent seasons.
Of course, the Flyers were No. 6 in average ticket price in 2008, according to Team Market Research, ahead of all those teams at that time. Heading into this season, with last spring's increases, the Flyers were 7th.

Financially, yes, this would be awesome, but at the same time it would imply that the fanbase needs extra motivation to come to games.

Pittsburgh can keep their fans with no pre-Crosby hockey knowledge to themselves.

This.
you should check out the prices for tonight's game right now. Pretty low. Who cares if it's the upper level?

I was talking to a nurse when my mom got her hip replacement done and he said he paid around $12,000 for his season tickets, he was six rows up from the ice and right behind the Flyers bench. That's just freaking insane.

Fans need at least one reason to go to those games.

On an unrelated note, I really like the way Columbus is set up immediately outside of the stadium.

You order online & pick them up at the Holiday Inn for a much cheaper price than the box office's.

I go to one NHL game a year if that, and those tickets are given to me. I wouldn't spend any money going to a game, I'd rather spend $20 to see an OHL game. You're much closer to the action and the price is way better.

What do you guys usually pay for upper level seats to marquee match ups (i.e., vs. Pens, Rangers, etc)?
